GLAMGLOW is currently one of the hottest brands in skincare. It was originally designed for exclusive professional use in Hollywood, but due to it’s popularity and high-end technology that delivers instant, visible results, the company made it available to consumers in 2011. The brand has many different masks and face washes targeted to different skin concerns/issues. The one that I am reviewing today is SuperMud Clearing Treatment.
A scientifically advanced face mask that targets, prevents, and heals problem skin. It helps to fight all common skin concerns including breakouts, discoloration, black/white heads, razor bumps, and even in-grown hairs. It is formulated without the bad stuff- Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.

The mask has a dark charcoal color with a minty smell. I apply a thin layer to clean skin with my fingers, usually after a shower when my pores are all open. Leave the mask on for a few minutes until in fully dries and then I take it off with a washcloth or warm water. I sometimes use it as full face mask and sometimes just on my t-zone. It gives your skin a cooling sensation and some tingling…good tingling.
The first time I tried it, I was skeptical of the effectiveness of all the active ingredients…I mean that’s a lot of stuff in that little thing, do they all work as promised? Oh yeah, they definitely do…this is honestly a mind-blowing mask. My skin was very smooth to the touch, soft and glowy with just one use.

The Bottom Line
Honestly, I’m not a mask person- I do exfoliators, toners and stuff…but due to the hype I had to try this out. As I mentioned before, I was skeptical because this little jar has way to many active ingredients, but to my surprise, the concoction works. I truly realized this treatment’s worth the day it healed my skin from an allergic reaction I had from a moisturizer. A new moisturizer that I was once testing left me with little bumps and redness all over my face and I was going crazy! I normally wouldn’t try on AHAs and BHAs during such a time, but I thought I’ll give GLAMGOW SUPERMUD a shot…and to my surprise, it healed the little bumps in a matter of minutes! My skin was clear, smooth and the redness was gone…really…no joke! If you guys want a mask that really will treat your skin’s imperfections…this is the mask for you…I highly recommend this for all skin types.
